This comes as a response to a letter written by Boris Johnson, in which he urged France to go further in stopping undocumented migrants attempting to cross the Channel.

The meeting which Ms Patel was expecting to attend on Sunday was a gathering of European interior ministers and the European Commission.

A source from the French interior ministry told POLITICO: “We find the open letter from the British prime minister unacceptable.

“Thus, Priti Patel is not invited anymore to the ministers.”

In the letter, Mr Johnson laid our five points of action which the French government could implement to ease the crisis, following the deaths of 27 people in the Channel this week.

Gerald Darmanin, French Interior Minister, said: “Making it public made it even worse.”
